What is F_AIR Florence Artist in Residence?

F_AIR is at the forefront of the contemporary art system and invites artists to reside within the school premises either for a semester or for the three months of summer sessions. During their stay, artists will learn to interpret the city and its surroundings through the expressive means of their art. They will exchange ideas with students, with fellow artists in town, and with professionals within the art world. They will work both as artists and academic professors and by the end of their stay they will present their project at a solo exhibition.F_AIR is at the forefront of the contemporary art system and invites artists to reside within the school premises either for a semester or for the three months of summer sessions.

The gallery is to serve students, faculty, and professional artists in the field of visual arts by preserving, collecting, exhibiting, and fostering the understanding of works of art with the high scholarly standards.
